Marcus Jordan, the son of NBA great Michael Jordan wants to “be like Mike,” but his University has only just now agreed.
The problem arose due to a contractual issue. The University of Central Florida, where Marcus is currently studying and play has a deal with Adidas where all their players must wear the product, without exception, even the son of Michael Jordan.
After some local controversy, the University has seen sense and Marcus Jordan has agreed to wear Adidas gear but stick with Air Jordans on his feet.
A rising star in his own right, Marcus was rated as the 100th-best shooting guard in the country as a high school senior by ESPNU, averaging 10.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game, earning state tournament MVP honors.
